I am a news junkie, and am passionate about human rights, and do not like any kind of violence against unarmed civilians. I love to travel, especially in Europe, and enjoy learning about different cultures, and eating the local cuisine.

  • Trump makes war, and everyone swoons
    • Let's face it, all it takes for a lame duck President to regain his standing, and stop his poll numbers from sinking is to lob some tomahawk missiles into a Muslim nation, and the entire nation, including the media (who he despised), congress, former rivals for the Presidency, and his voters, will think he is acting presidential, is showing toughness, and is ready to lead the country.

      No more talk about investigations, wiretapping accusations against the former President, strange and unexplained connections to Russia from those around him, and that his healthcare bill failed. It is so easy for American Presidents to get the approval of the American media, and the people - start sending missiles to Muslim nations, or drop a few bombs.

      Assad's fighter jets took off from that very airfield, hours after the tough orange man sent his 59 missiles to that area. In the US everyone applauded him for such a successful mission! Really?

  • The real free speech threat
    • Australians seems to be getting it faster than Americans. Obviously the lobbies are not as successful as they are in the US. Any well informed and fair minded person by now, realizes exactly who the victim is in all this, and who deserves that support. I guess the zionists will be extra busy over there trying to change this.

      "A new poll finds that 55 percent of Australians see boycotting Israeli goods and services as a reasonable way to apply pressure in support of Palestinians rights.

      That is up from just 31 percent who expressed support for the boycott of Israel in 2014.

      In the same period, the number who said they would not support a boycott of Israel fell from 47 percent to just 25 percent. One in five remains undecided.

      Overall, 34 percent of Australians said they sympathize more with the Palestinians than with Israel, an increase from the 27 percent who held that view in 2014.

      Fewer Australians (26 percent) said they sympathize more with Israelis than with Palestinians."

  • Trump's new war has neocons, Clintonites, and Israelis applauding, but left and realists dismayed
    • I cannot understand how the US, has turned out to be the world's biggest war criminal, waging wars that costs trillions of dollars, with their mighty weapons, and using bully tactics on helpless nations that do not have the capability, or capacity, to fight back. It seems the people cannot learn from past mistakes, and are so gullible, that even after learning that there were no WMD's in Iraq and that their President and his neocon administration LIED t them and used fake intelligence, they are still easily manipulated, and scared into believe any garbage from their leaders. They still cannot get it that the trillions of dollars spent on this never ending wars, deprives them of so much, including good healthcare, education for their kids, and that the American children who are hungry can be fed. They voted for a man this time, who is totally incompetent, has NO experience in running a township office, has admitted to groping women, has 5 children from 3 wives, and has bragged he knows MORE than the US Generals. It goes to show just how much voters in the US are ignorant, naive, and have poor judgement. Unfortunately the entire nation suffers.
      Trump will continue the pattern of endless wars, and we will be hated even more around the world. Right now the media, and even those within his own party who opposed him, think he is being so presidential, because he showed Assad we have great tomahawk missiles.

    • Yet another excuse to start wars. The world looks upon the US as a war monger, a nation constantly at war, looking to start wars, and always being in a quagmire in a Muslim nation, unable to get out of there. How quickly they concluded exactly who was responsible for the chemical attack, there was no investigation, nor waiting for officials to confirm their findings.
      The outrage you hear from US officials, even McCain, rings hollow. How many civilians have been killed, even recently, by US bombs and drones, and how many times have we responded by saying it was a mistake? Who are we now to show our outrage when we are guilty of killing civilians too. No one knows for sure who exactly acted so violently and used Sarin gas on civilians, taking a look at all the evil actors over there any one of them can be guilty, and this could even be false flag operation (some over there are experts at it), to intensify the war and topple Assad, and at this point no one can know for sure. Keep in mind the US backed rebels were also accused by the UN for using Sarin gas years ago.
      Trumps approval ratings were tanking, and now that he is feeling the love and adoration from around, he will want to show just how tough he is, and keep this momentum going with more tomahawk missiles, and what not. Americans do not learn lessons from past mistakes.

  • Read the full translated text of the leaked Hamas charter
    • Unlike the zionistis, at least they acknowledge and recognize Jews as people, which most Muslims do, because of their religion, it is zionism that they don't have to recognize. It is zionist policies that keep them occupied, make the lose their lands, and live under siege. Not Judaism.
      On the other hand, no people will want to recognize those who have kept them in limbo for the past 60 years, or have warm feelings for those who bomb them, and kill their children. That is too much to ask and expect.

  • 'New' Netanyahu policy on settlements promises Trump less building, and Israeli settlers more
    • I am sure everyone is sick of the condemnations and warnings, and nothing happening afterwards:
      "“We therefore call on Israel, as the occupying power, to meet its obligations vis-à-vis the Palestinian population in Area C, completely stop these demolitions and confiscations and allow full access of humanitarian assistance. We urge Israel to accelerate approvals of Palestinian master plans, halt forced transfers of population and demolitions of Palestinian housing and infrastructure; simplify administrative procedures to obtain building permits, ensure access to water and address humanitarian needs.”

  • JDL member arrested for attacking Palestinian-American teacher ran anti-Muslim website
    • We have a terror group openly operating and assaulting people in our streets, and it should make Americans wonder why these terrorists are given special privileges to behave so violently. There is a limit to how much we must tolerate these Jewish terrorists, the zionist interference, and the endless aid we send them, because we have been told that Jesus is going to grace this earth again, and the Jews will lay out the red carpet for him in Jerusalem. Jokes aside, imagine Frank Gaffney, and Pamela Geller going berserk, protesting and peddling hate, had this been some Arab group that has been called a terrorist group operating in any US state. This is a hate crime, so where are those like Gaffney and Geller protesting the nation being taken over by an entire religion?
      Selective outrage eh?

  • Palestinian-American teacher brutally attacked by Jewish Defense League outside AIPAC conference
    • Roha, I was speaking in general that Trump has unleashed hate crimes. As for the JDL, of course, they are of a different caliber, and come with a much more forceful agenda. Their behavior is despicable and it is a shame they are tolerated so much here.
      I did read somewhere that the JDL has become bolder since Trump office.

      Donald Trump blamed for massive spike in Islamophobic hate crime
      Hate groups nearly tripled from 34 to 101 in 2016, according to a report by the Southern Poverty Law Center, who say the president's 'incendiary rhetoric' is to blame.

    • Jon your list of banned "terror" groups are not operating openly, like the JDL does in the US . so your point is moot here. As for Hamas it is debatable whether they are a "terror" group or not, they are defending their people from the bigger terror threat, that comes from years of occupation, and mowing the lawn. I don't like their tactics, but they would not be operating the way they do if not for the occupation.

    • Marnie, this is where I read about the US banning the JDL, from a Haaretz article about the JDL operating in France.

      "The organization that put out the call for militant Jews is the French branch of the Jewish Defense League, or Kach, an organization established by Meir Kahane in the late 1960s and banned in the United States and Israel, but tolerated in France. - See more at:

    • We can only guess why it was taken off the list. The zionists have mysterious ways of twisting a few arms (aided by AIPAC) and hey presto!

    • They keep adding insult to injury. The king of evil announces more illegal settlements, after all he did promise his subjects they will get even more homes to live as squatters. . Keep in mind they have illegally built over 2500 already in the WB. Land thieves and murderers.

      "Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu hinted on Thursday that the security cabinet will approve the establishment of a new settlement in the West Bank for the evacuees of Amona.
      "I have promised in the first place that we would establish a new settlement," Netanyahu said at the start of his meeting with Slovakia President Andrej Kiska. "I think I made the first commitment in December, and we will hold it today. [In] a few more hours… you will have all the details."

    • So who lied to you and told you the JDL was not banned? Not only did the US ban the evil JDL, but ISRAEL supposedly did too. You learn something new every day.

      "An extreme right-wing Jewish group in France is recruiting Jews with military experience for a solidarity mission to Israel in order to help “defend” Jewish settlements in the West Bank from Palestinian protesters who are expected to march toward some of them on or around September 20.

      The organization that put out the call for militant Jews is the French branch of the Jewish Defense League, or Kach, an organization established by Meir Kahane in the late 1960s and banned in the United States and Israel, but tolerated in France.

    • If you think Trump is not a racist and cannot read the signs, then it is a waste of time trying to explain it to you. . No one claimed Trump was President at the time of Alex Odeh's brutal murder by the Jewish terrorists, so I don't know what your issue is.

    • Terrorism and other illegal activities
      In a 2004 congressional testimony, John S. Pistole, Executive Assistant Director for Counterterrorism and Counterintelligence for the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) described the JDL as "a known violent extremist Jewish organization."[100] FBI statistics show that, from 1980 through 1985, there were 18 officially classified terrorist attacks in the U.S. committed by Jews; 15 of those by members of the JDL.[30] According to the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs,[101]

      In a 1986 study of domestic terrorism, the Department of Energy concluded: "For more than a decade, the Jewish Defense League (JDL) has been one of the most active terrorist groups in the United States. [...] Since 1968, JDL operations have killed 7 persons and wounded at least 22. Thirty-nine percent of the targets were connected with the Soviet Union; 9 percent were Palestinian; 8 percent were Lebanese; 6 percent, Egyptian; 4 percent, French, Iranian, and Iraqi; 1 percent, Polish and German; and 23 percent were not connected with any states. Sixty-two percent of all JDL actions are directed against property; 30 percent against businesses; 4 percent against academics and academic institutions; and 2 percent against religious targets." (Department of Energy, Terrorism in the United States and the Potential Threat to Nuclear Facilities, R-3351-DOE, January 1986, pp. 11–16)

      In its report, Terrorism 2000/2001, the FBI referred to the JDL as a "violent extremist Jewish organization" and stated that the FBI was responsible for thwarting at least one of its terrorist acts.[102] The National Consortium for the Study of Terror and Responses to Terrorism states that, during the JDL's first two decades of activity, it was an "active terrorist organization."[6] The JDL was specifically referenced by the FBI's Executive Assistant Director Counterterrorism/Counterintelligence, John S. Pistole, in his formal report before the National Commission on Terrorist Attacks upon the United States.

    • It is all about connections, and this might clear it up.

      "Kach and Kahane Chai, a banned far-right party in Israel. Today both groups are considered terrorist organisations by Israel,[34] Canada,[35] the European Union[36] and the United States.[37] The groups are believed to have an overlapping core membership of fewer than 100 people.[38][39] The Jewish Defense League in America, founded by Kahane, is also considered terrorist. FBI statistics show that, from 1980 to 1985, 15 terrorist attacks were attempted in the U.S. by JDL members.[40] The FBI’s Mary Doran described the JDL in 2004 Congressional testimony as "a proscribed terrorist group".[41] The National Consortium for the Study of Terror and Responses to Terrorism states that, during the JDL's first two decades of activity, it was an "active terrorist organization."[42][43]

    • This is what Trump has unleashed. Deplorables and terrorists who have taken his racism as a green light, to openly terrorize and resort to violence. JDL has been named as a terrorist organization, and banned in the US, so why are they so openly operating here? For those who may have forgotten, here are the details of how they became so violent in the US, and murdered Alex Odeh, an Arab activist in California, and how Israel protected the murderers, giving the FBI a very hard time to find the perpetrators.
      I have never seen Arab Americans behave this way in the US. It seems these Jewish terrorist have a sense of entitlement to resort to any kind of criminals behavior here. So why are there no arrests? This kind of behavior reminds me of the terrorists who live in illegal settlements. They are vicious and violent thugs.

  • 'US is overwhelmingly partial to Israel,' Pelosi admits at AIPAC
    • So what chance of the Palestinians getting freedom and statehood, when their own have joined their occupier? I guess Saudi Arabia and UAE have turned on them. Flying with the enemy.

    • I agree with what you say, but I have not much hope that things will turn around. As long as AIPAC and other Israeli lobbies are allowed to operate within our political system, as long as our shameless politicians keep groveling for contributions and support, and show unshakeable devotion for it, even more than their own nation, the US will forever be controlled, and manipulated by that parasitic nation. The same story with the media too.

    • What those shekels can do. It makes American politicians grovel, try to publicly outdo each other in the flattery department, and openly support an occupation and land grabs, when it comes to only one alien nation - Israel. There is no other way to interpret these grand speeches and showings of love. Every year, we see this circus.

  • 'Scariest part' of Trump's draft peace plan promises he will be 'personally involved'
    • I am afraid the answer is highly unlikely. Every administration, from both parties, will always try to outdo each other when it comes to showing unwavering support for an occupier and land grabber, that is otherwise condemned by the rest of the world. This is the world's greatest democracy, and seems they are selective where democracy must be. Certainly not for the Palestinians in our lifetime.

    • "The days of bashing Israel is over"

      But Israel will continue to bash the Palestinians. In fact Nikki and Trumpy will make sure they keep getting the weapons to do it.

    • Something to make you want to throw up - Nikki Hayley laid down on the floor and showed the zionists she is willing to say "how high" too. She just made them look the victims in this conflict and vowed to protect them:

      "The Trump administration will not allow a repeat of last year’s United Nations Security Council Resolution condemning Israel for its settlements, the ambassador to the body, Nikki Haley, told AIPAC.
      “Never again do what we saw with resolution 2334 and make anyone question our support” for Israel, Haley said Monday at the annual American Israel Public Affairs Committee conference, where she earned the warmest reception of all of this year’s speakers, with an extended standing ovation.
      ""The days of Israel bashing are over," Haley said. 
      Haley was one of a number of speakers at AIPAC who drew a sharp contrast at the conference between President Donald Trump’s administration and his predecessor, President Barack Obama."

  • Israeli army statement on killing of Palestinian teenager in occupation is contradicted by evidence at scene
    • This is not the first time Israeli forces haves killed ruthlessly, and rigged the crime scene to make it look like the victims were the perpetrators. When it comes to the Palestinians, victims of their oppression, they easily stoop to being deceitful, and will try to get away with murder.
      Imagine the outrage, especially in the US media, if this had been the other way around. The terrorists wear uniforms.

  • Broad coalition attends teach-in on Israel lobby ahead of AIPAC conference

    • What kind of sadistic people are these? How many of these abuses will go on, until the civilized world steps in to stop the endless harassment, and ill treatment, of these poor children? Israel is one of the most disliked nations in the world, and the many videos tell you why. No one can blame the victims of Israel's violence, when they resist violently to it's crimes.

  • Towards Better Ally-ship for Palestine: A letter to the US activist community
    • Israel fails to twist arms and make other nations NOT vote for the call to avoid direct and indirects ties with the illegal settlements. Looks little Togo has been bullied into opposing the resolution, with Israel's BFF, The US.

      The UN Human Rights Council in Geneva adopted four resolutions on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict on Friday, including a motion condemning settlement construction in the West Bank, East Jerusalem and the Golan Heights. The motion calls on states and firms to avoid both direct and indirect ties with the settlements.
      The four resolutions are only declarative in nature.

      Thirty-six member states voted in favor of the resolution criticizing Israeli settlements, including Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium, Portugal, Slovenia, Switzerland, China, India, Japan, South Africa, Nigeria and Brazil. Nine states abstained: the United Kingdom, Latvia, Croatia, Albania, Georgia, Hungary, Panama, Paraguay and Rwanda. Only two countries – the United States and Togo – opposed the resolution.
      A senior Foreign Ministry official admitted that Israel failed to thwart the resolution, but said it was successful in softening significant parts of it, as well as convincing almost half of the European Union member states to abstain. “Considering the circumstances, this is an achievement,” he said.

    • Unfortunately, we have come to a stage where members of various UN bodies cannot make any accusations against Israel, criticize it, or condemn it, for what everyone knows are endless crimes of occupation, land grabs, human rights violations, excessive force against civilians, and Jewish terrorists attacking Palestinians and stealing from them. Israel will be outraged about their crimes being criticized and that the world has been reminded once again it's crimes, and the US will once again step in to protect the nation it nurtures, aids and arms.
      The Palestinians will continue to be occupied, and their lands will be all stolen.

  • Gerald Kaufman – From Labour Zionist to Israel's bitterest critic
    • I have never heard any passionate and brilliant speech by any American leader, like the one that was delivered by this brave Jewish leader in the UK. It is a shame that there are not many like him. He had the qualifications to stand up and call a spade a spade, much to the discomfort of the occupier, and by the attacks on Sir Kaufman, you know he hit a home run. Unfortunately people in Congress are too intimidated, afraid, or in the pockets of the criminals who have operated the longest occupation, and who shameless keep building illegal settlements against international laws.

  • Trump's 'America First' budget puts Israel right up there, too

  • Remembering Rachel Corrie, 14 years after the Israeli military killed her in Gaza
    • That "none of America's business what Israel does" is ironic. They beg and plead for billions in aid, get the best weapons, and unwavering support of the US even when they kill civilians in Gaza, and they have the darn chutzpah to say what they do is not our business. It make the US look like gullible fools, to keep enabling this criminal bunch. Without that unwavering support, aid, and weapons, for years, Israel will not be standing today.

    • The sad thing is they not only murdered her, but demonized her later on. I have seen the hasbara comments that accuse her of defending terrorists, and that she deserved to be killed.
      They have this filthy habit of killing and making the victim to be the evil person.

      I feel so bad for her parents because they have to live with this terrible murder, and that their own country did NOTHING to support their daughter, even after death.

  • Ambassador David Friedman: A diplomatic oxymoron
    • Trump appointed a very sly fox to guard the poor hens, and once again shows poor judgement, or this was a deliberate ploy to enable the zionists, and help them keep the occupation going, and complete their filthy land grabs. Either way, it once again shows just how corrupt Trump's administration is.

  • For Purim, costume contest celebrates soldier's killing of a Palestinian (free vacation on the line)

This also reminds me of the incident at an illegal settler wedding, where they showed their evil side, and celebrated the horrific murder of the Dwabsheh baby, even stabbing a picture of the innocent victim who died with his family, after a vicious terrorist attack by Jewish terrorists.

His father's name is on various illegal settlement buildings, he has contributed generously to various schools in the illegal settlement areas, and fully vested there. Despite all that the senate has given Israel an additional bonus to that generous aid package amounting to billions that Obama happily gave Israel, an ambassador who will not be an honest broker in this conflict, and who will be supporting any illegal moves by Israel to steal more lands, annex more lands, and give the Palestinians that final blow. Shame on the senate.

He suggested that instead of dealing with it like a conflict about lands and territorial dispute, they change it to look like the poor victim Israel is battling terrorism. It was then that despicable Benyamin and his band of bandits, refer to it as a terrorist problem, and the US media ran with it. I wonder if Luntz has any conscience, or whether he will say and do anything for money, even watch civilians being killed.

I have never seen such a shameless display of kissing up by a Catholic governor, who supports the occupier, every time they decide to mow the lawn and kill off thousands of poor Palestinians. One can only imagine the unwavering support he would give the despicable occupier if he ever becomes President. It is all part of the game unfortunately, but it still makes me ashamed to see American leaders make asses of themselves, when they fly out all the way to kiss the feet of a war criminal, liar, and corrupt leader.

  • While Justin Trudeau continues to aid and abet Israel, Canadians awaken to the reality that the peace process was a charade all along
    • That is true. The US and Israel, have been two partners in crime (the aid and weapons to reward them), and stats show the US has been directly or indirectly involved in the bombing of many Muslim nations, toppling their governments, and lie about fighting terrorists, while according to some reports, they work with some of them. Some estimates say that 2-4 million Muslims have been killed by US and it's allies, and we can only imagine how many millions may be injured by American led violence, causing millions more refugees. A very alarming reality. The word genocide comes to mind. Trudeau has a great image, but unfortunately like most western nations, seems to be in bed with the zionists. It is indeed a big charade. The US and other nations pretend they want to broker peace, but actions speak louder than words, and the consistent support, aid, and arms that they shower on Israel, and the reluctance to stop that aid, which is the only way to halt the occupation and land grabs, never seems to to be a possibility.
      They condemn illegal settlements ,but don't do anything about it. They don't give a damn about the Palestinian people and their rights.

    • How much more can they endure? They have appealed for help for years, and it seems the world keeps ignoring them. Their Arab brothers in other nations not only ignore, but some of them work, and are in bed, with their oppressor. This is one of the world's biggest shame.
      The US, UK, and other Western nations are meanwhile handing their killers weapons and aid, to continue the occupation, land grabs, and terrorist activities against these unarmed people.

      The Palestinians have the right to retaliate and defend themselves.

  • Israel bars Human Rights Watch director from entering country, calls org 'Palestinian propaganda'
  • Iran beats US for wrestling world cup, but you wouldn't know it from watching NBC
    • In the US, the media always diminish the greatness of a nation that it has been told is an enemy, out to get us, and any accomplishments are ignored. It is always the negatives that get highlighted, leaving the people ignorant, misinformed, and disliking it. It is such a shame.
      Iran is supposed to be a beautiful country, with a culture and history, any nation can be proud of.
      They have a young and educated population, and it is time they were accepted by the rest of the world (okay it does not matter one bit that Israel demonizes it).

  • From life in prison to 1.5 years - the Elor Azarya 'manslaughter' sentence
    • Because they have much to hide, Israel joins a bunch of rogue nations to deny Human Rights Watch that refuse entry to monitor human rights. Israel and North Korea eh? Hasn't the US constantly criticizing NK for the atrocities and human rights violations. Now their BFF Israel is also in that same rogue nation status.

      Israel joins Egypt, Sudan, the United Arab Emirates, Uzbekistan, Venezuela, Cuba and North Korea on the list of nations that refuse entry to Human Rights Watch to monitor human rights conditions.

  • Saying ‘I Am Muslim, Too’ is not standing in solidarity with Muslims
    • These brave Oscar winners showing shameless Congress people what standing up to an occupier should be like. Good for them. No swimming naked in the Dead Sea here.

      A Tourism Ministry public relations gimmick to bring Hollywood stars to Israel has bombed, with not a single one of the 26 Oscar nominees awarded free trips to Israel last year actually making the trip. Now, the BDS movement is taking credit for the failure.
      The tour packages, worth tens of thousands of dollars apiece, were given to 26 nominees in the highest-profile Oscar categories, including actors Jennifer Lawrence, Leonardo DiCaprio, Matt Damon, Sylvester Stallone and Kate Winslet.
      Last February, the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement put out an official statement urging recipients not to use the tour packages, charging that by coming to Israel, they would be helping the Israeli government whitewash what BDS terms the crimes of the occupation.

    • Too late Tom, they have morphed into modern day nazis. The US keeps aiding and abetting these crimes. Shame on us.

      "Israel engaged in extensive human rights violations in 2016, including detaining or continuing to imprison thousands of Palestinians without charges or trial, torturing many of those held in custody, promoting illegal settlements in the West Bank and severely hampering the movement of Palestinians, according to the Amnesty International Annual Report, published on Wednesday.
      The report found that among those tortured and detained under administrative orders were also children. Methods of torture included beatings, painful shackling and sleep deprivation. Among 110 Palestinians killed last year by Israeli forces, the report charged, some posed no threat to life and thus were shot unlawfully.

  • Trump is putting the crunch on liberal Zionism
    • If anyone has doubts that the US/Israel's fake war against ISIS is not an attempt to topple Assad and attack Syria, think again. Remember Israel tends to injured ISIS members. ISIS is supposed to be supported by nations like Saudi Arabia (Sunnis) and Assad is supported by Iran. Proxy wars. This is a US/Israeli ruse to once again bomb and decimate another Muslim nation.

  • Engineers in Gaza convert the rubble of war into concrete for rebuilding

  • Jews in Iran: a travelogue
    • Thanks Amigo, it seems Theo has taken it upon himself to correct me, while needing a refresher course himself!!!!

      Theo, from your comment it seems you are not even there yet.

    • Correct. They are Shiites and speak Farsi. I did mean Islamic nations.

    • It was great to have such insight into life in Iran. I found the article very interesting, and it clearly gave us a glimpse of life for these Iranian Jews. They seem to be very peaceful people, who have assimilated very well with their fellow Iranians, and able to follow their religion in peace. Shame on Israel, the US and others, who demonize Iran, and conveniently fail to mention the positive side to it. The US and Israel has one goal, and that is to eventually bomb the only Arab nation standing. Israel is tare jealous neighbor whose main intention is to make sure centuries of Iranian culture and history is wiped out. The world has constantly heard the threats against Iran, from Nutty holding up cartoon bombs, to Bush calling them one of the "axis of evil", and it is ironic these countries keep whining that it is Iran that is dangerous.

      Who appointed Avigdor Lieberman Saudi Arabia's champion.? It is strange that Israel has
      suddenly become Israel BFF. Dangeorus liaisons.

  • Palestinian, 25, dies after being shot by Israeli troops on his way to his last chemo session
    • What a sad story.
      The zionists have taken the role of those who once treated them this way. To treat a young ailing kid this way surely means that these war crimes come from a vicious and evil source, and that what these zionists have done to these poor Palestinian people shows they are the Devil's chosen, not God's.

  • After exciting disruptions, David Friedman hearing is a walk in the park
    • Well, to your point even their dishonest pink champagne drinking leader, was called a liar by a couple of world leaders.

  • Poll: Canada's politicians drastically out of touch with public on Israel
    • It is good to know that despite Canadians having access to the American media, they can intelligently realize just what Israel is, and what it is doing to the Palestinians.

      It would also be good for an unbiased polling company here in the US, one not corrupted by the zionists, to take a fair poll to see what people really feel about Israel. I often think that like the media, our think tanks and polling institutions could be zionist owned or run. Could they be taking a sampling of opinions in certain areas in Florida mostly, where for sure there would be strong support for Israel. I really am not sure.

      I hope the Canadian leadership wakes up and realizes which path they are taking. All they have to do is take a hard look at the US, to avoid the pitfalls.

  • Liberal supporters of Israel slam Trump's 'terrifying' comments-- some saying Jews need to keep a majority
    • They should be fearful, but let us not forget that Netanyahu does not care, he wants the status quo, will keep stealing land while ignoring the UN, and will take over everything their greedy hearts desire. The Palestinians will be languishing in limbo, and no one will care. The Arabs will continue to ignore their plight, some will continue to work with the occupier, the US and the UK among others will continue to give aid and weapons to Israel, the lawn mowing will continue every time a rockets is sent, keep calling them terrorists, and the zionists will get away with it.

  • Israeli govt and its supporters admit the fight to defeat BDS has failed
    • What Herr Tramp and all other leaders should be doing.

      "German Chancellor Angela Merkel decided to cancel a joint summit with Israel's government, scheduled for May 10 in Jerusalem. The official reason her office gave the Prime Minister's Office for the cancelation in the planned visit by Merkel and top officials was the German elections in September. But German and Israeli sources say there was another reason, albeit not the main one – her dissatisfaction at the Israel's new law to expropriate private Palestinian lands, enacted in Knesset last week." Haaretz

    • Obviously BDS has worked, it has cost the occupier billions of dollars (4.7 according to a MDW article), and when one looks at the vicious attacks on BDS groups, the organized zionist student bodies trying to influence colleges, idiotic hasbara comments, and shameless American leaders trying hard to make BDS an anti-semitic movement, it is clear they are afraid and trying hard to intimidate, and threaten, those brave enough to work for these BDS movements. It is time these good groups pushed harder, and hit the zionists where it hurts most.

  • Israel demolishes home of 100-year-old Palestinian woman leaving her homeless
  • 'We go to heaven, you go to hell': Israeli settlers caught on video threatening to kill Palestinians in Hebron

  • British uproar at Trump policies doesn’t extend to Netanyahu, yet
    • It certainly seems that way. This is a master plan and it has worked. All it took was pouring in money (maybe from the aid we send them which is ironic) to spineless but over ambitious politicians, who will sell their souls to win. They seem to have strong loyalties to this despicable nation, that occupies, and steals lands, over doing the right thing for humanity, and most importantly will go against their own President, to appease the leader of that nation. Britain still has a few principled leaders who will stand up and make a fiery speech against Israel's crimes, but at the end Britain too does what the occupier wants them to do. Sad situation.

  • Why Trump is even thinking about naming pro-Israel apparatchik who opposed him to high position
    • These are strong signs that Trump is going to be a staunch supporter of Israel, and that his policies will be all slanted to favor the occupation and land grabs. There will be no punitive measures against Israel for it's crimes and for breaking international laws, and as usual Israel will get away with murder.

  • Land Grab: Israeli Knesset passes law legalizing expropriation of privately-owned Palestinian land
    • Tired of the whining and condemnation, how about some action to hold Israel accountable for it's crimes, and treating it like the criminal it is?

  • 'Israel receives more US military aid than every other country in the world combined' -- New York Times reveals
    • Most Americans do not have a clue about the aid we give to Occupier land, let alone how much in weapons. Yes, they may (foolishly) believe that Israel is the victim (thanks to MSM), but someone has to break it down and compare it to what the money can do for the people in the country, schools, roads, medical insurance, etc. If they knew they were deprived of the help their representatives take away from them, to give to a parasitic nation, I bet they would not like it at all. The zionist media keeps up the false narrative that Israel is surrounded by enemies, and NEVER mentions why those rockets keep being sent, and that people are protesting their lands being stolen. If the zionist media had the guts to keep mentioning the reasons, the words "occupation" and "land grabs", perhaps there would be a change in attitude once the truth is out there.

  • Netanyahu scandals reflect corruption at the heart of Israeli society
    • A well written article. It makes me wonder yet again how American leaders, politicians, the media, American Jews, and those who still act like this man is some kind of hero, and who keeps going with his narrative that Israel must be protected from the bad hombres around it, when in fact Israel is a violent occupier, who kills, steals, and does not heed the condemnation of the entire world. Congress even defied their own President to invite this liar to speak in Congress, and they applauded when he criticized Obama's Iran deal. His family and he have shown dishonest tendencies from empty bottles belonging to the state being sold, to champagne and cigars, and little Yair being given lavish holidays by some billionaire for who knows what reason.

      The US should start getting wise by now, or do they have selective outrage when it comes to dictators and Prime Ministers who are being investigated for corruption and theft?

  • Dennis Ross's advice to Trump is 'bullshit, delusional or lying,' to gut two-state concept -- Peace Now
    • Good point. You are right the occupier who should be held accountable and responsible for the occupation, is treated like the hurt victim, and the Palestinians the aggressors. The blame is on all the Western nations who keep pouring aid and weapons to the occupier. The US and the UK keep pretending they are outraged at the illegal settlements, but hey, look they keep financing those illegal squatter homes on the other hand that keeps getting built no matter how much the world condemns it. The blame also should rest on the Arab nations who are now best pals with the occupier, and have shady dealings with it. All at the expense of the victims, who they are supposed to stand up for. They are a disgusting lot.

  • Jewish groups slamming Trump on refugees are hardhearted when it comes to Palestinian refugees
    • It says a lot that you can make Turnbull out to be a villain compared to Trump. Whatever their policies may be, a good leader shows how to deal with situations with tact and diplomacy, not bull in a china shop, ugly hombre tactics. In this case Turnbull acted with more dignity.

    • I did not compare Trumps to Obama, but since you brought it up, this might give you some indication how things are going. I am not here for your approval or to prove my credibility. Trump has been a terrible disaster, and never in my lifetime do I remember such chaos and confusion and the undoing of so many safety laws, within hours of any President taking over. He even has time to spend the weekend attending functions that benefit his business.
